passkey

Can I use the same passkey for all my PCs?
I'm currently running 3 pcs,
I distinguish each PC to run under a different name,
Should they use the same passkey, or each a unique passkey?

Use the same passkey and user name for all systems.

Using the same user name on many computers isn't a problem? (eg: the system won't send the same folding things to all computers?)

Not a problem, I used to fold as JimboPalmer on 55 PCs. I am down to 10 now.

When the client is first configured an unique machine ID is assigned to it on its first connection to the folding servers. So as long as you do not clone the FAH installation to other systems after that, each will get different WU's.
